all of this, defense, entitlement, social security, medicare, which are really going to be untouched here. now, there are details. white house officials say we don't know fully what will win and what is going to lose. this isn't a uniform across the board cut or freeze rather. the question here is is it worth doing something or, in fact, are the republicans as a political matter going to want to rehash the stimulus debate? if that's where they want to go, you'll get into an economic discussion not a budget issue. >> richard, always great to see you. thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you, chris. >>> new numbers on the real estate market. two reports out this morning painting a mixed picture when it comes to the value of our homes. cnbc's diana olick joins me now. home sales plunging nearly 17%. how are home prices hold iing u? >> they're actually kind of a mixed back, chris. it depends what survey you're looking at. yesterday we saw home prices bumping up year over year for the first time, looking at december's numbers. now we get the report that's looking at november, seeing pr

proposed, people seeing their benefits at risk under medicare. they see their insurance maybe being lost and forced into some other type of insurance. but you add that to the cap and trade proposals and the stimulus package, to the cash for clunkers program, these are all hugely expensive programs. what they add up to is massive debt for our country. what people are looking at and applying common sense here, they are looking at this debt and saying how are they going to pay all this. what are we going to pass onto our kids? most people are concerned we're going to end up passing onto our kids a nation less prosperous and where our kids have less opportunity than we got from our parents. that's never happened in american history and it's not fair to do. there's real concern about the size of the government and the fact the proposals coming out of this administration and this congress exploded the size of the government. >> what about, senator, something upon which everybody can universally agree being pushed through in health insurance and health care reform. if it's not the ginormous pac
. but those mandatory programs include medicare, medicaid, social security and other programs that really do require billions upon billions of dollars. democrats say, look, you should not exempt the defense department as the president's proposed to do. there could be a lot of trims within that as well. republicans are not happy, either. so a measure of bipartisanship, i guess. not the kind the president would like to see. republicans say this is all just a drop in the bucket, something more dramatic has to be done about federal spending. so the president's budget out tomorrow. released a big ritual every year down at the government printing office. >> mike, what about the reaction to the president's televised back-and-forth with the gop? apparently new reaction this morning from the right? >> reporter: that's right. john boehner is the republican leader of the house. he was on stage with the president, that extraordinary encounter at baltimore when the president there you see him taking the stage, met with the entire house gop and answered questions for more than an hour. the talk is biparti
in the country, you have to deal with social security and even defense spending and medicare and those entitlements, those obligatory spe pieces of spending. >> richard wolffe, thanks a lot. >>> some big economic numbers out this morning as well we just got in. the consumer confidence index for january rose beyond expectations to 55.9. now that is the highest number in more than a year and the third consecutive monthly increase but the news is not so great on the housing front. new figures show home prices slipped slightly in december by 0.2%. prices are down 5% from a year ago. and better news, though, for the auto world. ford motor company says it will add 1,200 jobs when its chicago plant starts producing a new version of its explorer suv but the new union workers we hired at sharply reduced wages. in baghdad at least 18 people are dead and dozens more injured because of a suicide attack near a criminal investigation office. the bomber drove a car packed with explosives to the entrance of the office and blew himself up. and this bombing comes just 24 hours after three suicide bomber
like medicare, medicaid, defense spending, those programs that deal with security, a massive part of the federal budget deficit. it's said only 17% of the budget deficit is going to be exposed, 17% of the budget is going to be exposed to some of this spending freeze and republicans are saying look it's a drop in the bucket, it's not enough and democrats, including right up to speaker pelosi have said, why are you exempting the defense department. some of these programs should be cut as well. it's always a big fight, a big ritual surrounding the budget drop. it happens tomorrow morn across town at the government printing office, alex. >> timing of one of these reports, seems that the u.s. is increasing its anti-missile capability in the gulf to counter arraign yan iranian missile strikes in the region. >> they're letting it be known they're deploy something missile defense systems and other systems, including missiles borne aboard naval cruisers around the persian gulf areas, american allies in that area, to do two things. first of all to reassure them in the face of this emerging
defense and a lot of other mandatory spending on programs like medicaid and medicare doesn't add up to that much in terms of the percentage of the total budget. at any rate, yes, yesterday the white house revealed they will make some trims do consolidations. the federal government is a vast far-flung bureaucracy and all kinds of agencies tucked away, abandoned, people who deal with abandoned mines, brown fields, education programs that they feel are due milktive, they're going to trim and consolidate a lot of that altogether 120 programs and that's where they'll get the $120 billion that you're talking about, alex. overall the budget is still going to be very large and a lot of freeze and spending and some of the trims are not going to make people on both sides of the aisles happy. democrats are already talking about the fact that the defense spending is being exempted from the spending freeze and republicans look at the overall level of cuts and say this is a drop in the bucket, of course. the size of the government, the size of the deficit, the size of the budget is something repu
to medicare, social security is actually in reasonably good shape and with relatively small adjustments you can have that solvent for a long time. social security is going to be there. a lot of people are concerned about it. social security we can fix. in terms of the cola, the formula -- cola stands for cost of living allowance. it's put in place to make sure social security is keeping up with inflation. here is the problem. this past year, because of the severity of the recession, we didn't have inflation, we had deflation. so prices actually fell last year. as a consequence technically seniors were not eligible for a cost of living adjustment, to have it go up, because prices did not go up in the aggregate. that doesn't mean individual folks weren't being pinched by higher heating prices or what have you, but on average prices went down. here is what we did working with these key members of congress here, we did vote to provide a $250 one-time payment to seniors, which when you factored it in amounted to about 1.8%, so it was almost the equivalent of the cola, even though it wasn't actua
